Oscar de la Renta

Yesterday the world lost a true talent, amazing designer, and a man who always gave back. Oscar de la Renta passed away yesterday at the age of 82 after suffering from cancer for several years. Oscar was born in Santo Domingo where he grew up and then decided to move to Spain to work under Cristobal Balanciaga and later Castillo-Lanvin to peruse a career in fashion design. 
 Oscar de la Renta dressed not only Hollywood royalty but also women like Jacqueline Kennedy, Nancy Reagan and Hillary Clinton. De la Renta's designs were not only beautiful, and elegant but were adorned with the most beautiful, vibrant colours. Oscar de la Renta has been praised by many for his generosity and kind heart. After adopting his son Moies, Oscar decided to personally support an orphanage in his native country of the Dominican Republic. He provided the children with housing, food education, and hope. 
 May he rest in peace.
